Actually, Walter (Ezra Godden) is just a student who rents a room in Dombrowski's (Jay Brazeau) appartment building to have some peace and quiet to write his thesis on parallel dimensions ... but he gets everything but peace and quiet, first his neighbour Frances' (Chelah Horsdal) baby is attacked by a rat, then hid donwstairs neighbour Masurewicz (Campbell Lane) fills his mind with some creepy storys about a witch and a rat with a human face, then he starts dreaming about the witch and the rat, then at least part of his dreams become reality and he realizes he is either sleepwalking or there is something very sinister playing him dirty tricks.

And ultimately, Walter realizes that

a) his room at the appartment building is really the door to another dimension, and

b) the witch has chosen him to sacrifice Frances' baby.

Naturally, sacrificing the baby is something he totally isn't up to, so he tries to break through to the other dimension, but only manages to break through to the attic, where he finds dozens of skulls, and the lair of the witch, who has already brought the baby with her and now tries to make Walter kill him ... but Walter fights the evil impulses she sends out to him, and actually thinks he has saved the baby once he has succeeded in destroying the witch ... but since then, the rat with a human face has ripped the baby's throat ...

When the police arrives, they find Walter holding the dead baby with blood all over him - naturally, he is arrested and ultimately put into the loonie bin because of the shit he's telling about a witch and such ... until evidence turns up that he had neither killed the baby, nor was he responsible for any of the other skulls in the attic, some of which are as old as 300 years.

But then, while still in his cell, Walter suddenly dies, and from his stomach bursts ... the rat with a human face that has gnawed its way through Walter's body. And suddenly his story rings true to the loo9nie bin#s staff, but alas too late ...


One of the best episodes of the (otherwise rather disappointing) Masters of Horror-series that perfectly portrays H.P.Lovecraft's unnamable horror as well as showing a proposed specialist in other-demensional affairs who suddenly turns out to be pretty helpless once it concerns his own life. Of course, in my synopsis the story sounds rather silly, but on film (or rather TV) it actually works just fine.
